Andrew Lill will join Rest Super, a Sydney-based fund with more than A$53 billion ($36.4 billion) in retirement assets, as chief investment officer, effective Aug. 17.
The position — integrating the fund's wholly owned Super Investment Management investment arm with Rest's internal investment team — is new.
The decision to appoint a single CIO for the Rest organization followed a 12-month review of the super fund's investment structure.
When the review's findings were announced in August, George Zielinski, the CIO of Super Investment Management, was named interim chief investment officer.
Mr. Zielinski "will continue at Rest until the end of August, whereupon he will retire," an announcement Tuesday said.
Mr. Lill will join Rest from Morningstar Investment Management in Chicago, where he was chief investment officer of the firm's $25 billion Americas mutual fund and manage portfolios operations. Mr. Lill was CIO of Morningstar's Asia-Pacific business from 2014 to 2018.
A Chicago-based Morningstar spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.
